Lending his support to Anna Hazare's movement against corruption, former Army Chief Gen VK Singh today asked the people to "throw" the corrupt out of power and support Anna's alternative political force.
Making his first public appearance since his retirement, General Singh spoke at length how soldiers are treated in the Army and the kind of training they undergo to tackle any kind of disaster or problem.
The former Army Chief, who was among the 22 eminent personalities who on Thursday appealed to Hazare and other activists to end their fast, asked the people to travel to every village in the country and spread awareness about corruption, its ill-effects and the alternative political force.
"It is in your hands. The right to vote is with you. You can throw the corrupt people out. Annaji is providing an alternative political force. Go to every village and spread awareness among people," Singh, who had a confrontation with the government on his age issue, said.
He also spoke about the JP (Jaiprakash Narayan) movement of 1970s and said the famous slogan 'Quit the Throne, Public has arrived' was apt for today's atmosphere.
"You have the same slogan and you all have the same alternative. One again revive the slogan of JP," he said.
